Well, I got an email from our attorney today stating that my ex-husband and I are not in agreement about how to divide the proceeds of the lawsuits.
I should not be surprised, but I am.
He explained under what circumstances he could keep representing both of us, and under which circumstances he could not. Basically if I agree to let my ex keep all of his settlement, the attorney can represent me with my much smaller one.
I wrote back to the attorney and told him this was a dark day for me and I was deeply disappointed. I told him I hoped my ex would change his mind in the next few days and come back to the 50/50 agreement, but that he was no longer communicating with me.
I told him I would accept no less than 50/50% and would look forward to hearing from him.
Happy weekend, right?
I’m so down, and I explained it to my mom she says I should count my losses and just let him have his lawsuit and me have mine (they are vastly different in size). I said, no. I won’t let him fuck me over again.
She kept going on and on and I was getting really upset and finally had to walk away from her.
I’d rather attorneys be the only ones who benefit from these lawsuits than let him fuck me over one more time.
So please, don’t YOU tell me to give up and give in to him again because I won’t. I’m going to fight this as long as I can afford to without it affecting my own savings.
Jesus, I’m down.
Let it go, but fight it. Let it go, but fight it. Let it go, but fight it.
